Efficiency in a ceiling fan means getting the most air movement out of the electricity (watts) that the fan motor uses. The Velo Hugger fan, which is well suited for lower ceiling applications, combines a strong motor with contoured blades molded of high-impact ABS plastic to deliver increased efficiency.
As with the Velo, The Velo Hugger is available in either a bright nickel or gloss white finish and has an optional light kit for ambient lighting, available with either a halogen or fluorescent light source. Note: Any control ordered with a fan that has been configured with an energy-saving CFL will be supplied in a non-dimming version. The three blades may be specified in either nickel or white and have a blade span of 50".
Notes: Express shipping is available on this item. In most cases, orders received before 12:00 PM Pacific time will ship the same day.

Modern Fan Company
Modern Fan Company. Consciously cool.
Modern Fan represents a new age in ceiling fans — the marrying of efficient function with contemporary design. Designed by Ron Rezek, the Modern Fan Company's models celebrate the modern idiom through mechanical simplification, geometric forms and contemporary finishes. The unique ceiling fan styles of Modern Fan represent a new age in ceiling fans — the marrying of efficient function with contemporary design (you won't find any wicker or flowery fans here!).
This fan is perfectly balanced and operates flawlessly.
I wanted a ceiling fan that would be stylish but relatively inconspiculous in my great room. It improves the appearance and comfort of our home.

Lovely modern ceiling fan, does what it's supposed to do and looks great doing it.
This fan is very nice, works great and looks great in the modern styled bedroom. Some confusion with the lighting controls, but easily taken care of with a call to the manufacturer.

Love our fan!
We bought the fan in stainless and installed it on the front porch of our 1926 Tudor house front porch and it looks great.
The modern style looks great with the mid-century design.

Clean, modern, silent
Wanted something modern to blend in to our white ceilings and these (we bought four) definitely fit the bill. Perfectly silent and aesthetically minimal, they are highly recommended. YLighting service was excellent as usual.
By: James E., Homeowner
Wanted a low profile fan in the bedroom and this fits the bill. The look is clean and modern and quite. Would buy another for the other rooms in the house.

Modern, simple, functional
I purchased this fan to replace a chandelier when I turned my dining room into a piano room. The room has 9' ceiling so I selected the Velo Hugger to maximize the head clearance.
I love the 3-blade appearance. It looks so simplistically modern. The curved base and the rounded end of the blades helped balance out the straight line of the piano. The bright nickel finish also helped brighten the room against the black piano and enhanced the contemporary feel. The energy saving CFL light kit provided adequate light for a small room (10'x10') and did not make the fan too low.
Ylighting service was great. They answered all my questions promptly and thoroughly. The shipping was good. The price was very competitive. Overall, I'm very happy with the purchase and Ylighting service.

Wonderful fun for my baby's nursery! Sleek design and very powerful.

Modern and Sleek
Purchased this fan with remote control function and no lighting. It is very quiet and perfect for a bedroom/room with lower ceilings. Installation was also a breeze.

Modern & Minamalist
Easy to install, perfectly balanced, very minimalist. Blends into the ceiling well, but once noticed it catches the eye with its beautiful propeller-inspired design. Low profile--good for lower ceilings. Runs silently.
By: Koop, (Texas)
Nice look, small profile
Very hard to find a relatively small light/fan combination. This fan does the trick. With only three blades it's much less obtrucsive than many other fans, and even with the light attachment, relatively low profile for smaller rooms like the bedroom.
By: R.D., Homeowner (Wilimington, DE)
The Velo Hugger ceiling fans have great style and look wonderful in the beach house I designed. I wish they were a bit more powerful for moving air around. I think the design can be refined to provide better air circulation.
By: Nicholas P., Architect (Fire Island Pines, New York, USA)
Cool and Contemporary
We're remodeling a sunroom and selected the Velo fan for its understated good looks. It's replacing a white & clunky contraption so it's definitely a step up. YLighting service was excellent and we love the fan.
By: Kathy, Homeowner (Greensboro NC)
Love this fan, especially with the light addition. Great for low ceiling height.
My boyfriend and I purchased 3 fans from Y-Lighting for various rooms throughout our new home. We were completely satisfied with every fan we purchased including the Stella fan and the Artemis. Y Lighting has been my go to spot for modern lighting and fans, and I have yet to be disappointed. Installation was easy, my boyfriend installed the fans himself.

I just bought a new modern condo and I knew this would be perfect for the master bedroom. Very modern but not cold modern.
By: Dave J., Homeowner (Chicago IL)
Great fan. Simple, sturdy, great looking!
I am an interior designer and I love this fan. It is a great looking, simple design. I use it over and over again!
By: Joan P,
Well designed and easy to install.
We purchased two Velo Hugger Ceiling Fans, one for each of our bedrooms. The fans have a nice, modern/minimal design. They were extremely easy to install, especially due to the easy to follow instructions and well marked parts and packaging. Was able to install each fan in about twenty minutes via a ladder. Our ceilings are eleven feet tall. You hardly hear them run except if you have it set on high, then you'll hear a slight hum, but that's to be expected. We also purchased a remote for each fan which makes them even easier to operate. In all, we're very pleased with this product and would buy it again.
By: South B., Homeowner (Miami Florida)
Love this fan!
Bought this fan for my daughter's room in white and I love the shape of the light. It really moves the air well and it is quiet. I did have a pro install it.
By: Pamela T., Homeowner (Southern California)
Love this fan
Bought this fan for our master and it has a great look. I do not really like fans but this one has great lines and makes a statement while still being understated. I really like the 3 blades and pleased to see that it moves just as much air as our 4 blade fans.
By: Pamela T., Homeowner (Southern California)
Awesome Fan, very distictive design, nice addition to any room.
I bought this fan to replace an existing "Home Depot" type product... this fan truly adds to the room in sooo many ways, it is a work of art in itself. Very unique in design. Quality of the unit is wonderful and the installation was very easy. This fan will last a long time and the design is timeless. Great product. I am buying another one for the bedroom shortly.
By: David L., Homeowner (Torrington, CT)
Not only is the product great, the customer service of this company is of a very high standard -not all modern companies hold true to this simple thing that a customer wants ... reliable service.
Aloha & mahalo!
By: Wessel O., Homeowner (Honolulu, HI, USA)
Great way to reduce energy consumption.
Purchased the Velo Hugger during a recent heat wave. Due to the fans, I was able to keep AC use reasonable despite the oppressive heat. Classic design. Whisper quiet. Attached light gives a warm glow to read at night. Purchased Velo remote control turns light off, and I'm counting sheep comfortably in a few minutes...
By: Seemo C., Homeowner (Ann Arbor, Michigan)
Beautiful fan, keeps us cool!
The fan arrived in just a few days. We had a professional electrician install it in our bedroom, who kept commenting on what a nice fan it was. The light is very strong, although the electrician did say a replacement bulb might be a little hard to find. Hopefully we won't need to replace it too often. The fan works great, and the first night we had it running we slept better than we had in recent days. It's been nearly 100 degrees, and even though the A/C is on, the fan keeps us cool and comfortable. We love it!
By: Laura, Homeowner (Washington, DC)
This is a great ceiling fan!
This fan is stylish, balanced and quiet. It provides above average air movement, even in a room with a very high ceiling. Even my interior designer likes it! (most designers have an intense dislike of ceiling fans)
By: Diane T., Homeowner (Cleveland, Oh)
This fan is small, attractive and gives out a big wind
We got two of these fans. One in chrome and one in white. Our rooms are good size, not huge. These fans are small and compact and make quite a statement when up. The blades are not long but when the fan is on, it does an amazing job of cooling the whole room. On slow and medium there is not a sound to be heard and on high you do hear whooshing as it twists but there is no motor sound at all. This is one great fan!
By: Leslie W., Homeowner (Natick, Ma. USA)
Quality exceeded expectations
Info on product correct. Fast and easy order & shipping. Instructions & installation easy. Using with hand remote, no light source. Quiet in lower speeds, and moves air efficiently. A bit above quiet in the higher speed...use in Audio/TV area-not annoying. Beautiful and sleek design. We will definitely purchase this product for other rooms in our home.
By: Paula H., Homeowner (Indiana)
Fan was for a customer but they are happy with it and may want a second one. Shipping time was accurate and it came in perfect condition.
By: Schram, Homeowner (Rochester MI)
I am very satisfied with the velo hugger ceiling fan both esthetically and functionally.
The quality of the product was up to my expectations, be it in terms of aspect ( material and finish), design, or functionality. It serves its purpose well whilst looking good. I hate ceiling fans and these integrated nicely the beautiful design of the home remodel. They are stylish but not too much of a visual distraction.
By: Carl D.,
Perfect fan for our modest-sized bedroom!
We love the clean lines and modern design. Not cheap, but worth it!
By: Elizabeth, Homeowner (Kentucky)
Love this fan.
I purchased 4 of these fans (w/light) and love them. They work well and look great. They were delivered promptly and undamaged.
By: Murph, Homeowner (Austin, TX)
We have purchased this fan for bedrooms at a beach house and like the modern look of the fan. We never purchased from YLighting before and we are very pleased with the quality.
By: Steven M.,
Excellent, Modern Fan
I purchased the Velo Hugger w/ light for my bedroom in a modern home in Southern California. The look and design of the fan is very nice. Quality parts, materials, and aesthetics. Also, the wall switch and the remote control are very nice features.
My one negative bit of feedback about this product is that upon installation, one of the blades of the fan rubbed against the base unit. The rub was only very slight, but it required me to remove the fan and file down a small bit of one of the blades. The modification is not noticeable, and now the fan works fine, but was disappointed that it did not rotate effortlessly out of the box.
By: Eric A., Homeowner (Dana Point, CA)
I purchased the hugger and non-hugger versions of this fan to go in our living room (with 25' ceilings) and our bedrooms with 9' ceilings.
These are both excellent fans and run very efficiently and silently, even on the fastest setting. The one in the living room has the longest downrod available and does not wobble at all. The hugger fans fit the smaller rooms nicely (approx 12x12).
We have four of these in our home and I plan on purchasing 1 more to finish out the house.
By: Raymond, Homeowner (Austin, TX)
Fantastic modern ceiling fan!
This is the fourth Velo ceiling fan I purchased from YLighting for my house. I received great compliments on the look of the first three, and loved they way they quietly and efficiently moved the air around, so I added the Velo Hugger to my home office. The fan came quickly and was easy to install. When I complete my media room I plan to buy yet another Modern Fan Company Velo Hugger from YLighting.
By: Mike N., Homeowner (Falls Church, VA)
Love this fan.
Purchased hugger version, bright nickel, 26W CFL, Fan & Light Control (004ND)
+ great air movement
+ low-medium-high settings
+ hugger dramatically improves look vs the uninspired fans seen in most homes
+ plastic blades
+ 3 blades
+ great-looking light option
+ energy-saving CFL light option
- a little difficult to mount flush/level with ceiling
By: Robert, Homeowner (Seattle, WA)
Good design, Good quality.
We have 8'-0" tall ceilings in the bedrooms, this fan felt a little bulky for the small space, but overall the design and construction is high quality and we are pleased. The fan is very quiet even when on high speed.
By: Imprint Architecture & Design, LLC, Homeowner (Seattle, WA)
Love my Hugger.
The Velo Hugger is just what I wanted after a frustrating search. It's designed for 8 ft ceilings and has a CFL!!! instead of those halogen lights, so it's energy efficient. Installed, it looks great. It's in my new kitchen for ventilation and my husband loves it.
By: Elizabeth S., Homeowner (Columbia, MD USA)
Moves a good amount of air on low and medium, I cant see high being used - very quiet no noise. Easy to put up just make sure your junction box is level as if the joist is not really flat with this style fan it wont sit flush - the downrod ones are far more forgiving. I had to shim mine using some cardboard so it sits dead level.
By: christopher f., (LAS VEGAS)
It's beautiful, simple, modern and works quietly and efficiently.
By: Tina G., Homeowner (Pa.)
Great finish. Clean lines. Good air circulation.
Ceiling fans were shipped in a timely manner. Good quality at a fair price. Would order again for future projects.
